Based on a BBC drama of the same name, “Undercover” depicts the story of Han Jung Hyun (Ji Jin Hee), who has been hiding his identity for a long time, and Choi Yeon Soo (Kim Hyun Joo), a human rights lawyer who becomes the first head of the Senior Civil Servant Corruption Investigations Unit to fight for justice.

A fierce battle begins to protect love and justice from the huge forces that dominate and shake the country for profit. The drama is expected to dig into the reality of power and closely follow the story of human multifacetedness hidden in it as well as discuss what is right and wrong.

First off, Ji Jin Hee’s character Han Jung Hyun is an agent at the Agency for National Security Planning who has been hiding his identity for a long time. He’s known for his extraordinary quickness and boldness, and during his top secret mission, he falls in love with Choi Yeon Soo and eventually marries her. However, his secret life gets caught up in an uncontrollable whirlwind when his wife becomes nominated for a post at the Senior Civil Servant Corruption Investigations Unit.

Ji Jin Hee commented, “I decided to star in this drama because I was touched by Han Jung Hyun, who sacrifices himself to protect his loved ones. I am also looking forward to reuniting with actress Kim Hyun Joo and working with her again. I’ll be back soon with a good drama and acting, so please show lots of interest for ‘Undercover.'”

Kim Hyun Joo’s character Choi Yeon Soo is a human rights lawyer who has lived for justice and truth. In recognition of her lifelong beliefs and abilities, she becomes nominated as the first head of the Senior Civil Servant Corruption Investigations Unit. Little does she know that her new position will force her to face a shocking truth.

Super excited about this drama!! 

Loved this couple's previous project and I've watched it multiple times by now, which btw is rare for me as I usually don't repeat the same kdrama. Their acting & chemistry are that brilliant so obviously I was ecstatic when I read about their upcoming project :)

I love them on I have a lover

 

Such amazing chemistry so i guess we got a treat here.

 

My only problem is that i just realized how similiar this synopsis was with tvn drama that will airing soon ( flower of evil ) i mean it is different character and job indeed but we got the same two men hiding their identities and both got wife too.

 

I hope it is not too similiar so people dont compare it to one another.

 

But because this is a remake i hope for the best because the two lead is so reliable and we already see their blazing chemistry before

Kim Hyun-joo joins Ji Jin-hee in JTBC’s Undercover

by tineybeanie

jjh_khj.jpg
Ji Jin-hee, Kim Hyun-joo

Kim Hyun-joo (Watcher) and Ji Jin-hee (Designated Survivor: 60 Days) will reunite in upcoming JTBC drama Undercover, which is the Korean adaptation of a BBC show by the same name. Ji Jin-hee plays an NSA agent who has been hiding his identity for a long time. Kim Hyun-joo plays a righteous human rights lawyer who becomes the first-ever commissioner of a civil servant corruption investigations ministry.

The two confront immense powers that use the country as an excuse to pursue their own profitable agendas. In discovering the truth behind these powers, they find different aspects of humanity revealed, and a battle begins to defend justice and fight for love.

Previously, Ji Jin-hee and Kim Hyun-joo worked together in passionate melodrama I Have a Lover, in which they played a married couple. In Undercover, they play a married couple again, but the circumstances are very different. Ji Jin-hee’s character was handpicked to be an NSA agent right out of police academy because of his extraordinary reflexes, and his daring bravery allowed him to enjoy a successful career within the organization. He falls in love with Kim Hyun-joo while he’s on a top secret mission, and they get married. When she becomes a candidate for commissioner, his secrets make them vulnerable to a spiraling power struggle.

Ji Jin-hee said, “I picked this project because I was so touched by Han Jung-hyun [my character] and how he sacrifices himself for the ones he loves. I’m looking forward to working with Kim Hyun-joo, whom I haven’t seen in a long time. I promise this will be a good project with good acting, so please look forward to it.”
